book cover

The famed nineteenth-century poet and rake, Lord Byron, comes to life in a searing blend of fact and fiction. Traveling in the mountains of Greece, Byron falls under the spell of a mysterious fugitive slave, whose pale, slim body arouses his lust. Utterly entranced, his fate is sealed. The supreme sensualist embarks on a life of adventure--that of the world's most formidable vampire.

Qvamp says:

Good story, but the same-sex part was very oddly added. It was as though gender didn't matter, but that same-sex love never seemed to quite happen.

Overall Rating: A+     Queer vampire Rating: F    

This book is not gay. The other person to give the rating must not have read the book, because it opening explains how the male to male sex scene was only a kiss, and later on in the story it comes out that it is really a girl hidding her true identity. If all you are looking for in your book is some queer arousement, this is not the book for you. If you are into the gothic premises of reading, and are interested in horrors; this is a grade-A book (A+ in my opinion)
